Here it is, the official trailer for Minor Revisions, the program that critics are calling the most thrilling docu-reality special involving someone whose name rhymes with Schmennifer Schmulwiler:
And some huge news: The show has been picked up by the Verizon FiOS network, and will be available as an on-demand show to their 3.5 million subscribers! Whoo-hoo! (If you’re not a Verizon subscriber, the show will still air on the NET channel in New York, and will be streamed live online for anyone with an internet connection.)
I AM SO EXCITED. It’s turning out so well, with very little credit due to me. Let me tell you about the inspiring people behind the scenes:
The prospect of creating programming that is both genuinely entertaining AND faithfully Catholic is a daunting task. How do you put together a reality show that’s fun to watch without resorting to lewd behavior? How do you keep things interesting when your protagonist only occasionally drinks wine straight from the bottle while dancing on tables? The producer and the other folks at NET brought a ton of energy and passion to this challenge, and I am amazed at how well they’ve tackled it. Thanks to their experience, professionalism, and dedication, they’ve managed to take a few dozen hours of footage of my life and make something that is actually super fun to watch!
The first episode of Minor Revisions airs THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, at 8/7c.
Plan to grab some snacks, some friends, and the beverage of your choice, and join me online for a little virtual viewing party! I’m not going to get a sneak preview of the final product, so I’ll be watching it for the first time right along with you guys! (Expect more than a few tweets like, “OH MY GOSH WHY DIDN’T THEY TELL ME MY HAIR WAS DOING THAT?!” and, “Oh…I didn’t realize the mic was on there.” I may make #mortified a trending topic, from my own tweets alone.) Yes, I’m slightly nervous about how it’s all going to turn out, but it’ll be fun since I’ll have you guys watching it with me…right?…right?
